Adding a single product
In the menu on the left click 'products' then “add a product”.
Type in the name, price, and SKU (stock keeping unit). These 3 pieces of information are required for every product.
Product Description: Fill in the description of your product. Enter essential information about your product, this is where you need to really sell your product. Mention necessary information about sizing too. Add a short description optimised for SEO.
Then choose if price the includes tax or not. If your product can be sold with a different VAT rate, change this value here.
You also have the option of adding additional information, like dimensions and weight.
Tags: To make your product easier to find, add the appropriate tags. Think about materials, colours, sizes and other things your customers search for to find your product.
Images: You can add multiple photos at a time.
Stock (Inventory): The inventory level toggle lets you automatically keep track of your inventory levels.With is disabled, quantities will not change when a product is sold. With this toggle enabled, your product quantity will decrease by one every time a product is sold.
If using this feature, select notification threshold. If you choose high, you will be notified when the stock quantity hits 20 pieces (since you sell a lot of these items and need time to replenish your stock). For average, you will be notified at 10 pieces and for low, 5.
All that's left is to add SEO information and to add the products to an already existing category, collection and/or brand.
You can also import products from a CSV file.
Click the 3 dots in top right corner and choose “import product from CSV”
Choose the relevant CSV file.
Here you see a preview of the first 3 products listed in the CSV file. Use the drop-down list, to match columns from the CSV file to those in your shoplo account. If you want to skip one just unselect it.
Depending on the number of products the import may take a while.
Refresh the page to see your newly imported products.
Double check to make sure the products have been added correctly.
